PhD successes for Associate Fellows

27th May 2008

The Centre is delighted to announce that three of its Associate Fellows have gained their doctorates – all in pioneering dissertations on the status of animals. They are:

Deborah M. Jones, ‘Can there be a Roman Catholic Theology of Animals?’ (University of Wales, Lampeter, UK)

Les Mitchell, ‘Discourses and the Oppression of Non-Human Animals: A Critical Realist Account’ (Rhodes University, South Africa)

Siobhan O’Sullivan, ‘Animal Visibility and Equality in Liberal Democratic States: A Study into Animal Ethics and the Nature of Bias in Animal Protection Regulation’ (University of Sydney, Australia)

Associate Fellows are usually graduate students who are pursuing research work on the status of animals. “These are people who are helping to put animal ethics on the academic agenda through their groundbreaking research”, commented Professor Andrew Linzey. “The Centre extends its warmest congratulations to them on their achievement and we wish them every success in their academic careers”.
